What is the difference between the Vanguard Method and a Vanguard Group?

The Vanguard method is simply the collection of principles and truths that I have gathered with the help of others to achieve my personal goals for the education of my children:

(1) Encouraging faith in God as their ultimate mentor
and source of truth through the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ
(2) Helping them find value in their own unique mission and introduce the
to various communication styles so that they may communicate that mission to the world
(3) Helping them come face-to-face with greatness as they study the world,

history, people, and science in order to to prepare them to become future leaders in their homes, communities and society.
(4) Creating an environment of respect, decency, trust, and confidence
(5) Teaching service-oriented leadership

The principles and truths that have been put together under this umbrella term of "Vanguard method"  are universally available yet uniquely combined.  That is why I have distinguished this collection of ideas by a name...not to claim exclusivity or rights to them, but rather just to allow for a term to identify them by.
